Let's hear make and model so I can check specs.
Also, some motherboards do this if there is a BIOS bug. Be sure the BIOS is current.
https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/A68HM-GRENADE notes version 1.4. Got that?
hi guys i am really new to the whole p,c scene so i am not that clued up on a lot of stuff. i got my new graphics card a little while ago but i have ran into a couple of problems and haven't been able to actually use it.
motherboard:MSI - A68HM-GRENADE Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard
processor: AMD A8-7650k
RAM: 10.0gb (8.96 usable)
system: windows 7 ultimate 64bit
old graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce gt 610
new graphics card: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING X 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1569 MHz GPU, 1784 MHz Boost, Twin Frozr VI.
the first problem i had is when i had got my new graphics card i didn't do my research hard enough because i didn't know that this GPU needed a 8 pin PCIe. my battery only has two four pin connectors so i went out and got a 4 x2 to 8 pin connector hoping this would resolve the issue once i plug everything in properly and try and turn on i get no power at all. i was thinking it could be something to do with my pcu so i am looking at getting a new one. like i said i am really new to p.c scene and would greatly appreciate any help on this. i have got a feeling this probably isn't loads of info to go off by but i will be happy to answer any questions.
